MEMO is a 501 (c)3 student-run, non-profit, humanitarian organization. All proceeds and donations will go toward to this year’s mission in Vietnam. MEMO sets up free medical clinics for the underserved, gives scholarships to students, provides free surgeries to children with congenital heart disease, and provides funding and toys for children in orphanages.
A group of doctors, health professionals, and student volunteers will travel to Vietnam to hold free health clinics in villages. We will conduct preliminary needs assessment, administer vitamins for the severely malnourished population, treat patients to the highest ethical standard, and sponsor referrals to those with needs beyond our capabilities.
Through this project we hope to give children an opportunity to have a future. Funds raised will be used to help orphanages provide the necessary healthcare for these children in addition to sheltering and caring for them. Funds will also be used to buy school supplies, clothing, and provide an education to these children.
There are 21.6 million people in Vietnam living in rural poverty. The only way they can rise from their current living conditions is by attaining a good education, however, many children are unable to because of lack of money. Their families cannot afford to keep their children in school and they need to beg in the streets. Please consider sponsoring a child and helping them escape poverty. A donation of only $60 will allow a child to stay in school for an entire year.
We will bring surgeons to Vietnam to provide children with congenital heart disease with life saving surgery. In total, we were able provide surgery to 14 children that could not afford treatment. They are now living normal lives.
